Re: Did my grandmother's sister survive the Holocaust?! Looking for Esther (Arminne) KOLLMANN (nee Weinstock) #holocaust #hungary
I assume you also checked the Arolson Archives.
I too am searching for surviving family -2 young children of my great uncle Josef Maier Stauber and his wife Mindel Fishman of Dragomiresti, Romania. My uncle survived and came here and remarried. I got his son, my cousin to do DNA testing as he would be a half sibling to the missing children. Since records are not really available in the 1930s when your great aunt's daughter and my cousins were born that also hampers research. I was told to try contacting the Romanian embassy (for you it would be the Hungarian Embassy) and asking them for help. A long shot. I think if you didn't already get the closest relative to them to do DNA testing you should. Other than that I am going to try posting on several FB sites like TTT. You can also hire a private researcher. I hired Beth Long and she found many records at the archives but not these. I did find Mindel's grave from 1943.
In addition to hoping against all hope that they survived I would like their names for yahrzeit. Since we keep reading these stories about people being found we can always hope.
Good luck and please post if you find information.
